Baby bottles need to be sterilized frequently. After each feeding, the bottle should be cleaned to prevent milk stains from remaining on the bottle. Therefore, many mothers will buy a bottle sterilizer.
There are several types of baby bottle sterilizers on the market, such as UV baby bottle sterilizers and steam baby bottle sterilizers. So is the UV bottle sterilizer good? Is the bottle sterilizer better to steam or UV? Let's find out.
Advantages of UV bottle sterilizer:
1. Dry at medium and low temperature to avoid the release of plasticizers or bad chemicals from some plastics (such as plastic milk bottles) caused by high temperature of steam. And medium and low temperature sterilization can sterilize the bottle cleanly, without worrying about burns.
2. Dry first and then sterilize, and sterilize at the end to avoid secondary pollution.
3. Easy to use, no need to add water, avoid scale and other troubles.
4. The medium and low temperature sterilization can just sterilize the milk bottle without scalding, it can be automatically dried, and has a storage function, which is very convenient to use.
1. Function comparison
The steam bottle sterilizer is sterilized by high-temperature steam at 100°C, which is the most widely used and the most thorough and effective method for sterilization.
The steam bottle sterilizer will generate more steam, and the sterilized bottle will be moist, and bacteria can easily grow again in a humid environment. Therefore, most steam bottle sterilizers have a drying function, which uses hot air to expel excess water vapor to keep the bottle dry.
In addition, because the steam bottle sterilizer is equipped with a heating device, some products also add auxiliary functions such as hot milk, defrosting food, and hot complementary food, which can be said to make the best use of everything.
The UV baby bottle sterilizer does not generate steam when it works, but in a relatively sealed sterilizer, the water retained in the baby bottle is not easy to dissipate. Generally, it also has a drying function, but it does not have functions such as hot milk.
2. Which one is better?
The steam baby bottle sterilizer has a simple structure, stable and reliable functions, and is relatively cheap. If the items to be sterilized can withstand high temperatures and are not afraid of humid environments, the steam baby bottle sterilizer will be a better choice; on the contrary, UV baby bottle sterilizers are also a good choice.
